“Empow­er­ing indi­vid­u­als through edu­ca­tion and resources to iden­ti­fy, pre­vent, and erad­i­cate fraud for a safer, scam-free soci­ety.”


Our Found­ing Prin­ci­ples

Stamp Out Scams, Inc., is a non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tion ful­ly com­mit­ted to rais­ing aware­ness and edu­cat­ing the pub­lic about scam pre­ven­tion. We are com­prised of a team of pas­sion­ate indi­vid­u­als who share a pro­found com­mit­ment to pro­tect the vul­ner­a­ble from finan­cial crimes and scams.

Our foun­da­tion has its roots in the exten­sive law enforce­ment expe­ri­ence of our founder, Nick Hen­ley. With 25 years of ded­i­cat­ed ser­vice as a spe­cial agent for the Unit­ed States Trea­sury Depart­ment, Nick spe­cial­ized in inves­ti­gat­ing finan­cial crimes. His career exposed him to the dev­as­tat­ing con­se­quences of scams on inno­cent lives, lead­ing him to ini­ti­ate a bat­tle against such crimes as a pri­vate cit­i­zen.

Nick­’s law enforce­ment career not only equipped him with a deep under­stand­ing of scams but also fos­tered a robust net­work of retired and for­mer law enforce­ment pro­fes­sion­als. These sea­soned experts, hav­ing per­son­al­ly wit­nessed the pain and suf­fer­ing that crime inflicts upon vic­tims, car­ry both a sense of empa­thy and a relent­less desire to fight against it.

A pri­ma­ry goal at Stamp Out Scams is not just to stem the tide of fraud­u­lent activ­i­ties but to anni­hi­late this scourge com­plete­ly.  This endeav­or might sound ambi­tious, per­haps even unre­al­is­tic, giv­en the depth and com­plex­i­ty of the chal­lenge.

But, as our founder likes to say, “it always seems impos­si­ble until it’s done.”



Our Team & Net­work Of Vol­un­teers

At Stamp Out Scams, Inc., we har­ness the exper­tise of this valu­able net­work, involv­ing them direct­ly in our scam pre­ven­tion ini­tia­tives.

But it’s not just about expe­ri­ence or knowl­edge; it’s also about the heart. Our orga­ni­za­tion is pop­u­lat­ed with indi­vid­u­als who are gen­uine­ly pas­sion­ate about pro­tect­ing vic­tims and pre­vent­ing scams.

From devel­op­ing edu­ca­tion­al resources to con­duct­ing pub­lic aware­ness cam­paigns, we are moti­vat­ed by the belief that every per­son deserves to be safe from finan­cial scams and the dev­as­ta­tion they bring.
